    content in the atmosphere until 2300: influence of energy intensity of gross domestic product and carbon intensity of energy

    The study provides a model of CO2 content in the atmosphere based on the global carbon cycle and the Kaya identity. The influences of: 1) energy intensity of GDP; 2) carbon intensity of energy on CO2 trajectories are given under four scenarios. The results from the most optimistic and technologically challenging scenario show that the atmospheric CO2 concentration can stabilise at ...

  • Environmental solutions for the natural gas industries

    As domestic natural gas production continues to grow, the industry faces unique air pollution control challenges that require custom-designed solutions. This White Paper examines two aspects of the natural gas exploration and production industry: Production of “frac sand” used in hydraulic fracturing and operation of dehydration units. America‟s natural gas industry continues ...

  • Simultaneous domestic wastewater treatment and renewable energy production using microbial fuel cells (MFCs)

    Microbial fuel cells (MFCs) can be used in wastewater treatment and to simultaneously produce electricity (renewable energy). MFC technology has already been applied successfully in lab-scale studies to treat domestic wastewater, focussing on organic matter removal and energy production. However, domestic wastewater also contains nitrogen that needs to be treated before being discharged. The goal ...

  • Preliminary study of osmotic membrane bioreactor: effects of draw solution on water flux and air scouring on fouling

    Preliminary study on a novel osmotic membrane bioreactor (OMBR) was explored. Objective of this study was to investigate the effects of draw solution on membrane flux and air scouring at the feed side on fouling tendency in a pilot OMBR system composing the anoxic/aerobic and forward osmosis (FO) processes. Domestic sewage was the raw feed, FO membrane from HTI and NaCl/MgSO4 draw solutions were ...

  • Environmental damage costs from airborne pollution in the major cities in China

    This paper estimates the environment external costs due to air pollutants via the impacts pathway approach used for ExternE project in the major cities in China over the period 2003-2006. The estimation results show that the external costs were US$ 20.15 billion in 2006, representing 2.28% of gross domestic product (GDP). This means that China suffered a lot for the air pollutants with the ...

  • Not just hot air — global diplomacy and the search for a successor to Kyoto

    Every winter the gates of Copenhagen's famous Tivoli Gardens, an old world amusement park in the city centre, open to officially mark the beginning of the extended Christmas period. This December the twinkling lights of Tivoli will most likely be outshone by COP 15 — the most important global climate change meeting ever — as thousands of diplomats, politicians, business people, environmentalists ...

  • Asian games fresher in Beijing, China

    Beijing, China officials enlisted the aid of Aeration Industries International and its AIRE-O2® aeration system to restore water quality in a major river that winds throughout the city, including the sites holding the 1990 Asian Games events. Domestic sewage and industrial discharges into the river had polluted the river which is common to rapidly growing, developing cities. The AIRE-O2® system ...

  • Sustainable Goods Movement: Environmental Implications of Trucks, Trains, Ships, and Planes

    Consumers today have a hard time avoiding products manufactured and transported overseas, as economic globalization moves more goods from factories to major markets throughout the world. For example, in 2005, imports and exports represented approximately 25% of the U.S. economy, up from 15% in 1990.1 Increased goods movements to and from international markets generate increased domestic freight ...

  • Environment, governance and GDP: discovering their connections

    This article investigates the impacts of governance and GDP on environmental quality, as measured by water quality, air quality, wilderness of land and biodiversity, using data from 123 countries. It finds no evidence that GDP growth will turn environmental degradation around after a certain point, as much of the literature has suggested. Instead, GDP's impact is mixed and conditional upon ...

  • Entropy added taxing methodology: a case study with domestic refrigerators in India

    Use of thermal engineering appliances, especially refrigerators and air conditioners has increased enormously in both industrial and in domestic sectors. They cause considerable environmental pollution due to the release of a large quantity of refrigerant (chlorofluorocarbons) and the use of a large quantity of power, generated mainly from low quality domestic coal. Also available energy or ...

  • An Interactive Environmental Economy Model for Energy Cycle in Iran

    ABSTRACT The growing world economy calls for saving natural resources with sustainable development framework. This paper intends to look at the environment-energy interface (impacts on the environment stemming form the energy sector) and to propose measures for reducing this impact without trying to impede economic development. In addition, this paper estimates the amounts of energy subsidies ...

  • Evaluation of the environmental impact of two different heating scenarios in urban area

    In this work, the impact of two different house-heating systems on pollution scenarios in the Turin town centre is evaluated by means of the three-dimensional modelling system RMS. The first scenario (present situation) refers to the NOx ground level concentration due to an existing Combined Heat and Power Plant (CHP-plant) and to domestic heating, whereas the second one (future situation) ...
